Expressing our hotel-wide cosmic theme in name, ambience, and menu items, Aurora hits a fantastic level of cuisine thanks to the creativity and talent of Executive Chef Mike Trudnak.

But some of the very best culinary experiences are yours to enjoy without even leaving our Tribute Portfolio hotel here on the University of Central Florida campus. After all, steps from your room or suite you’ve got the gastronomic awesomeness of Aurora, our on-site Celeste restaurant.

Aurora: Impeccable Cuisine at The Celeste

Expressing our hotel-wide cosmic theme in name, ambience, and menu items, Aurora hits a fantastic level of cuisine thanks to the creativity and talent of Chef Mike Trudnak.

Whether you’re dining in the beautifully appointed restaurant or taking advantage of just about the best room service you’ve ever had, your taste buds will delight at Aurora’s flavors. Your meal could (and, really, should) begin with one or more of the shareable starters, including the Florida Wagyu Beef Sliders, the Celeste Crab Cake, or Aurora’s Truffle Fries.

For lunch or dinner eats, you’ve got everything from flatbreads (Short Rib, Margarita, or Korean Fried Chicken), sandwiches, and the Celeste Burger to such entrees as Shrimp & Grits, Root Vegetable Pave, and Char Grilled Skirt Steak.

Don’t you dare skip dessert, either: Not when you’ve got such concoctions as Aurora’s Key Lime Pie or the indulgent dark-chocolate balloon dome called The Supernova on offer!

Cocktails here include The Aurora, Orion’s Belt, Luna – Goddess of the Moon, and The Black Hole, and you’ve also got a full array of other beverages to choose from, including super-fun wine flights.

Did we mention Aurora handles breakfast as well? Rest assured this most important meal of the day is delivered at the same high caliber as the rest of the menu.

Sleep Well and Eat Well at The Celeste Hotel

By all means, explore the delightful ins-and-outs of the Greater Orlando dining scene. We have a feeling, though, that you’ll be hitting up Aurora more than once during your stay at The Celeste!
